PCB is not ready with ‘bio-secure’ environment for players’ training


Karachi: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is not ready with a ‘bio-secure’ environment to accommodate players when they return to the ground for England tour’s preparation. 

According to ESPNcricinfo, the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Lahore doesn’t have enough lodging facilities to accommodate around 25-30 players, likely to join training camp for England tour, with a ‘bio-secure’ environment.

On the other hand, the national team’s bowling coach Waqar Younis and physiotherapist Cliffe Deacon are not in the country right now which is yet another drawback.

It must be noted here that the PCB is yet to confirm a ‘bio-secure’ tour of England from July-September this year. As many as 25 players will fly for England to play three Tests and as many T20Is. The players will undergo a three-week training camp, likely to start later this week or next week.
